After a motorcycle accident that happened two miles south of Sandusky, Ohio earlier this week, a man died at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. The deceased man was identified as David Moore, 57, of Norwalk, Ohio, and he died at 2:30 a.m. according to the Sandusky highway patrol. Immediately following the accident on Wednesday afternoon, Moore was life-flighted to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center after crashing his motorcycle on Ohio State Route 4 near the West Bogart Road intersection. In a failed attempt to pass another vehicle, Mr. Moore lost control of the motorcycle and was ultimately separated entirely from his motorcycle. Additionally, it is very important to note that Mr. Moore was not wearing a helmet.
If you are interested in purchasing a motorcycle or if you already operate a motorcycle, you may be asking yourself whether or not there is a helmet law in Ohio. The answer to this question is yes, but the Ohio helmet law is complex and consists of three different components. The Ohio helmet law is specific for motorcyclists over the age of eighteen, motorcyclists under the age of eighteen, and motorcycle passengers.
